7:00 AM | *Shower/thunderstorm risk returns late tomorrow and will continue on Saturday*

Paul Dorian

High pressure will continue to control the weather around here today providing us with another day of sunshine and very warm conditions. The humidity will increase today as the temperatures climb to or slightly above the 90 degree mark for afternoon highs. Temperatures will climb to 90 degrees on Friday afternoon as well and there can be some shower and thunderstorms activity late in the day and tomorrow night and the threat for showers and storms will continue on Saturday as a frontal system approaches the region. It’ll turn a bit cooler early next week following the passage of the frontal system.

7:00 AM | *Summer-like weather to continue into the weekend*

Paul Dorian

High pressure will build into the area today and help produce plenty of sunshine to go along with quite warm temperatures and moderate humidity levels. Temperatures will climb to 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday and there will be an increase in humidity as well in this first extended stretch of summer-like weather for our area. There can be some shower and thunderstorm activity late Friday, Friday night and Saturday as a frontal system approaches the region. It’ll turn a bit cooler early next week following the frontal passage.

7:00 AM | *Summer-like weather for the remainder of the week*

Paul Dorian

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a warm frontal passage will pull away this morning from the coastline and some sunshine will return to the area this afternoon to go along with very warm and humid conditions. The second half of the week will feature the first extended stretch of summer weather so far this year in the Mid-Atlantic region with high temperatures near the 90 degree mark tomorrow and then in the 90's on Thursday and Friday. A couple of weak disturbances this weekend could bring a return of showers and thunderstorms to the Mid-Atlantic region and it should turn slightly cooler early next week.

7:00 AM | *The first stretch of summer-like weather coming this week*

Paul Dorian

The first stretch of summer-like weather is coming our way this week and highs during the second half of the week will approach 90 degrees on a daily basis. High pressure will push offshore today and lose control of our weather after providing a very nice weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region. A warm front will lift through the region late tonight and likely produce showers and thunderstorms from late tonight into Tuesday morning and some of the rain can be heavy at times. High pressure will build back into the area at mid-week and it’ll turn summer-like for the second half of the week.

7:00 AM | *Morning showers then becoming windy today with lowering humidity...sets us up for a decent weekend*

Paul Dorian

A strong cold front is passing through the region early today with lingering showers, but it’ll pave the way for a nice break in the action from the recent very wet weather pattern here in the Mid-Atlantic. Winds will increase noticeably this afternoon from a northwesterly direction and the humidity will drop sharply later today. High pressure building over southeastern Canada should be strong enough and close enough to produce decent weather around here through much of the upcoming weekend. More showers will return to the region later Sunday night and there can be shower and thunderstorm activity on Monday and Tuesday with temperatures well up in the 80's.

7:00 AM (Thursday) | ***Severe thunderstorm threat later today/tonight and then a break in the action for Friday, Saturday, Sunday***

Paul Dorian

A tremendous amount of rain fell late yesterday and last night across southeastern PA, east-central PA and much of southern and central NJ with nearly four and a half inches recorded at Philly Intl Airport. All of this was as a result of extremely slow-moving shower and thunderstorm cells in an overall weak wind field in the atmosphere along with a tropical air mass firmly entrenched in the region. For today, an unusually strong low pressure system for this time of year will move towards northwestern Pennsylvania and an associated strong surface cold front will slide towards the I-95 corridor. At the same time, a powerful wave of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere will move over the Mid-Atlantic region. As a consequence, there can be an outbreak of severe thunderstorms from later this afternoon into tonight that could impact the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor with damaging wind gusts, hail and perhaps even a few isolated tornadoes and the localized flooding threat will continue as well in any downpour. Once the strong cold front clears the coast by early tomorrow, the threat for rain will wind down, humidity will drop noticeably, and the winds will pick up from a northwesterly direction gusting to 30 mph or so. High pressure will build into the area later tomorrow and it may just stay in control for most of the upcoming weekend, but more showers and thunderstorms are possible around here by Sunday night and Monday.

7:00 AM | *More heavy showers today with possible thunderstorms...severe thunderstorm threat for later tomorrow afternoon/early tomorrow night*

Paul Dorian

A nearly stationary frontal system draped across the Mid-Atlantic region will continue to act as a focal point for showers and thunderstorms today and tonight and any shower or storm can produce heavy rainfall as they will be slow movers. Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can quickly result in localized flooding conditions. Ingredients may be coming together for a severe weather outbreak in the I-95 corridor later tomorrow afternoon and early tomorrow night. An unusually strong low pressure system for mid-June will move over the western part of the Mid-Atlantic by later tomorrow and a strong surface cold front will slide towards the east coast. At the same time, a powerful wave of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere will move over the Mid-Atlantic region. As a result, there can be an outbreak of severe thunderstorms late on Thursday that could impact the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor. Once the strong cold front clears the coast by early Friday, the threat for rain will end, humidity will drop, and the winds will pick up noticeably from a northwesterly direction. High pressure may stay in control for much of the weekend, but more rain is possible here by early next week.

11:45 AM (Tuesday) | **Threat continues today for downpours and strong-to-severe thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic region…severe weather threat along the I-95 corridor late Thursday as well**

Paul Dorian

A nearly stationary frontal boundary zone is combining today with tropical-like humidity and upper-level energy to generate more showers and thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic region and this threat for rain will continue tonight and Wednesday as well.  Some of the rain that falls will be heavy and some of the storms that form later today will reach strong-to-severe levels potentially resulting in damaging wind gusts and even isolated tornadoes.  Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rain can quickly produce localized flooding conditions with a couple of inches possible in a short period of time.  Later in the week, the combination of a strong surface low pressure system and associated cold front with powerful energy aloft will likely result in a severe weather outbreak in the I-95 corridor from later Thursday into Thursday night before a break in the action arrives for Friday and Saturday.

7:00 AM | **Threat continues today for heavy showers and strong-to-severe thunderstorms**

Paul Dorian

The threat continues today for heavy showers and possible strong-to-severe thunderstorms. A nearly stationary frontal system draped across the Mid-Atlantic region will continue to act as a triggering mechanism for showers and thunderstorms and some of the rain that falls will be heavy at times. Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can quickly result in localized flooding conditions and some spots could receive an additional few inches on top of what has already fallen in recent days. A strong front may finally push through the region later Thursday night/early Friday and this could pave the way for a break in the action for later Friday and the upcoming weekend. That frontal passage, however, may come with the threat for severe weather late Thursday into Thursday night before windy and drier conditions arrive here on Friday.

7:00 AM | **Torrential downpours later today and possible strong-to-severe thunderstorms...watch for localized flooding**

Paul Dorian

Torrential rain is possible here later today and early tonight as a nearly stationary frontal system hangs around the Mid-Atlantic region contributing to a very moist and unstable atmosphere. There is also the threat for strong-to-severe thunderstorm activity in this type of pattern which could result in damaging wind gusts to go along with heavy rainfall. The threat for heavy rain and possible strong-to-severe thunderstorms will likely repeat on Tuesday afternoon and evening and perhaps again on Wednesday and Thursday. Given the already well-saturated grounds, localized flooding is indeed a serious concern this week in this unfolding extremely wet stretch of weather. A break in the action may arrive later Friday and for at least part of the upcoming weekend before a return to the threat for rain again by the early part of next week.
